my call to action

My jury duty was called off. Perhaps they were tipped off by the "hang 'em" comment.

Down the Hatch


Oh what the freak! I love Lost. I love Ben and Locke. I wish they would just have a beer together and talk about the good times - like when they thought Ben arrived by a happy face parachute and had him hunkered down in the hatch. Can't you just picture them at the cabin kicking back with Jacob (who's at the BBQ) while Claire makes Sangria? It feels like with all this stress these islanders live with they could use a little Dharma sauce.

My favorite episodes are those which center around Sayid. I could watch him be a badass all day. What delightful, shall we say "stage presence" he has. Yummy.

Now that the 2 hour season finale has come and gone I feel like I have to watch all the seasons over again. There is just so much information and most of the time I'm too distracted to savor all the juicy bits.

But after the final scene tonight - I wonder if they have to bring this body back - wouldn't it be easier to have it cremated? And what a perfect title for this show, Lost. Sure they were lost in the beginning but now everyone left on the island is even more lost than before, not to mention everyone who made it off metaphorically and all. I'm so satisfied with the writers when I think about how hard they must work to think of innovative ways to tie all these past and future events together with such ambition.

J to the 'enna

Well it's true -I read it in Baltimore magazine - the blonder first daughter is moving to Baltimore. I was slightly surprised to read that J and Henry will be shacked up on busy Charles Street of all places (though close to watering holes may have been one of the search criteria). I have to admit that the house is pretty cute in a very traditional, perhaps Federal way; however, the kitchen is not quite my taste. Interested in taking a peek? Sales Price: $440,000.
More than anything I found it remarkably amusing that the buyers got $5,000 in closing help for this one.

finally someone is talking about oil!

And this is great. Finally some one is taking these oil execs to task for all their money grabbing.

Humanimal = Cybrid?


I came across this thought provoking article on the Times' website. Britain's House of Commons has voted in favor of passing legislation that will allow the creation of human-animal embryos for medical research. It's really quite fascinating. The cell of an animal is stripped of it's nucleus and implanted with Human DNA. The cells (embryos) are destroyed within two weeks - the purpose is to use the stem cells. Since there are a shortage of human eggs available for research this new technique opens things up by using animal eggs injected with human skin cells. Sounds confusing but the article is very well written so even I could understand it. They don't plan to grow actual animals just "clump cells." However you look at this scientific possibility one thing is for sure... this is the beginning of a whole new era.

Not a Pretty Girl


Today is Ani DiFranco Day. I'm listening to Not a Pretty Girl (1995). I'm thinking in honor of all my 90's nostalgia I will dedicate the entire month of May to the Nineties. Any objections? I didn't think so... Tracks 4-7, 9, 10, 12 and 13 should do the trick.

whitechocolatespaceegg

I'm feeling very whitechocolatespaceegg (1998) today. I remember that when this album first came out I wasn't that into it. I had to listen to it over and over and over again. And then I loved most of it. Especially numbers 3. Perfect World, 10. Go on Ahead and 14. Fantasize. Makes me just want to sit outside with an icy drink, headphones and my ipod on repeat.

If there was ever a question about my morality...

Here ye, here ye. All ye people shall be considered on notice that our local government has found me fit to contribute my opinion to the fate of a fellow citizen.

It's true that I, LCB have been chosen to be a juror for an upcoming trial in hoco later this month. I've been wondering when this little bit of paper sunshine would appear. If selected, I promise to be fair, strict and to, er, hang 'em! If guilty of course.
